Know your Numbers

Posted on September 5th, 2022

#KnowYourNumbers by checking your blood pressure regularly 

When did you last check your blood pressure?

Know Your Number is a national campaign to raise awareness about the importance of checking your blood pressure, especially for those who are over the age of 40. Around one third of adults in the UK have high blood pressure which rarely has noticeable symptoms but if untreated, it increases your risk of heart attack and stroke. ​

You can get your blood pressure checked at an NHS pharmacy, an NHS Health Check appointment offered to adults in England aged 40-74, at home or at your local GP surgery.  Find resources and more information at: NHS UK and British Heart Foundation.

    • High blood pressure increases your risk of heart attack or stroke – knowing your numbers could save your life

The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is to have your blood pressure tested. ​

  • It’s recommended that all adults over 40 years of age have their blood pressure tested at least every five years so any potential problems can be detected early
  • If you are diagnosed with high blood pressure, it’s important to have your blood pressure tested more regularly, at least once a year. ​

Call to action

  • You can get your blood pressure checked at several places. NHS pharmacies in England are able to provide the lifesaving checks to people aged 40 or over. You can also get it checked at an NHS Health Check appointment offered to adults in England aged 40-74, at home using a home blood pressure monitor or at your local GP surgery
  • The NHS in England has allocated some patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure with a blood pressure monitor so that they can take their readings conveniently, safely and accurately in their own homes and share readings with their general practice as agreed
